With theories flying around that the more analytical of us are dominated by the left side of our brains, and the more creative of us are dominated by the right side of our brains; and tests like this one intended to analyze which side of your brain is more dominant,making the rounds on FaceBook, I deduced that listening to music would be favored by one side, however “Uber facts” on twitter had this to share:
Listening to music is one of the few activities that uses the entirety of the human brain.

Which reminded me of this song, that even though it has been around for the last three months, everytime it comes on, I feel I listen to it with more than just my brain! No matter if I am stuck at a traffic light or in a grocery store line, when this song comes on, I feel I have no control of my limbs or even torso for that matter. This song just makes me happy! And so does the fact that Today is Friday!
Ingredients for 6 muffins:
Half cup of whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons oat bran
Half cup of almond meal
Quarter cup of brown sugar
Half teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Half cup almond milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
Quarter cup of almond butter
6 tablespoons almond butter
6 tablespoons jelly (I used Trader Joe’s Boysenberry Preserves)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Mix all the wet ingredients: egg, almond milk, vanilla, yogurt, quarter cup of the almond butter
Then mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients
In muffin tray lined with 6 muffin cups, place a heaped spoonful of muffin mixture and then add a tablespoon of the almond butter and a tablespoon of the jelly and then top with another spoonful of the muffin mixture, in all.
Sprinkle some oats on top
Bake for 18-20 minutes
Then grab a cup of coffee
Find a quiet spot
And experience BLISSFUL HAPPINESS YALL!
